Tobu Zoo is located in Saitama prefecture which is the north next to Tokyo. Approximately 150 species, a total of 1200 animals, including a rare species of white tigers live in the zoo. You can have exciting experiences, such as feeding the animals and interacting with the small animals. Tobu zoo shows us many baby animals born in Saitama prefecture after the accident. Generally speaking, animal's growth is so fast than human beings that they are more sensitive to radioactive materials of the environment than us.
So I visited Tobu zoo to see effects of the accident against animal's babies which eat Japanese foods.
Fortunately, I could see them grown up safely and I couldn't find any impact of the accident. It seems that there is no problem for childbirth and child-rearing in Saitama Japan.

I continue to visit various places in the Japan to see the effects of the accident, because I can meet various creatures which are more sensitive to radioactive materials from the environment. It is important to see their health for our safety.
